Does that equate to a fiduciary duty akin to the one expected for investment advisors? In this episode, Blaine makes the argument that it does and discusses with Duane the sources of those fiduciary duties.

An overlooked aspect of the DOL’s fiduciary rule is that it introduces a “holding out” fiduciary status, where titles that imply fiduciary status will hold the advisor to that standard. Even with the uncertainty around the fiduciary rule, this trend appears likely to continue, as even opponents of the rule have demonstrated support for regulating titles that cause confusion with the investing public.
